3. Quinoa porridge
Porridge is great for you, but quinoa porridge is even better. Make a portion of quinoa flake porridge with almond milk and you’ll have a tasty, filling breakfast ready. A great way to make it even tastier is to add some berries, or perhaps some chopped apple, along with almonds and a dash of cinnamon. This is a nutritious, filling breakfast that also packs a protein punch.
Quinoa porridge is a great alternative for people who have a gluten intolerance, or for people who are trying to avoid gluten. The use of almond milk also means that this is a great porridge option for vegans and vegetarians.
Everyone seems to bash coffee as unhealthy and full of caffeine, but it can actually be really good for you. As long as you’re drinking your coffee black, or at least without any sugar or syrups, you can enjoy a number of health benefits from this satisfying morning drink.
Drinking just a couple of regular eight-ounce cups of coffee every day can have a number of positive effects, including reducing your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease later on in life, and helping improve your memory in general. Coffee has even been shown to help people who have type 2 diabetes, and help prevent diabetes. It does this by making cells more sensitive to insulin.
To top it all off, good quality coffee is also full of antioxidants, meaning cells are protected from damage, DNA will not be affected by free radicals as much, and you can enjoy good general health and protection from oxidative stress.
A banana is another versatile food that can be used in breakfast, but it’s entirely different to an egg. The fruit even comes with its own packaging, meaning you can easily eat it on the go.
Packed full of potassium, and with no sodium at all, this fruit offers slow-release energy and can help control your blood pressure. The more potassium you consume not just in your breakfast, but generally, the better.
Try cutting up banana and eating it with muesli or porridge, or if you want to try something really unique, combine mashed banana with an egg and fry to create the perfect banana pancake. You’ll be surprised how tasty it is!
